Marie-France Pisier, is a French actress, screenwriter, and director, who appeared in more than 70 films of the French New Wave. She was discovered by François Truffaut at the age of 17 and appeared in three of his films, including "Love on the Run", after which she appeared with other French directors. Ms. Pisier first came to the fore as an actress of the Nouvelle Vague movement in the 1960's and appeared in a few noted American films as well throughout her life.
Focus on Eric Valli, photographer and French director. A superb job of focusing on the series around the Himalayas, the Middle East and Nepal living within local populations. Meetings, portraits and his pictures for National Geographic are to be discovered later in the article.
A sadly short list...most of these directors were also actresses: Alice Guy-Blache, Lois Weber, Paula Blackton, Ruth Stonehouse, Dorothy Davenport, Grace Cunard, Leni Riefenstahl, Dorothy Arzner and Ida Lupino. #women #film
